You'd told me that before and I'd completely forgotten!  Unless it's changed 
recently I believe that Torque only supports the older interface in ProPack3.

Unfortunately SLES9 doesn't seem to have it (on PPC64 at least), so I guess 
the kernel package in ProPack4 enables it.

# mount -t cpuset none /dev/cpuset
mount: fs type cpuset not supported by kernel

SGI contributed to it, I don't believe they originated it..

It'd be nice to try them on PPC64 too..
